Each month I will be spotlighting one of my students – past or present, and their artistic ventures! I work with students of all ages and abilities and you’ll get to learn a little bit about these amazing artists and their work!
Our September spotlight is on:
Hello, my name is Caden Pavese and I am 13 years old. I am home schooled and in 8th grade. I have been taking art classes with Ms. Jenell since 2nd grade. I began taking classes because I enjoy it and both of my older siblings were attending classes too. Two of my favorite art mediums to use are pencil and acrylics. Some of my other interests include: woodworking, hiking, camping, Boy Scouts and VEX robotics.
How long does it take you to complete your artwork? “It depends on what I am doing, but if I am drawing it usually takes me a few hours.”
Besides visual arts are you into any other art forms? “Yes, I like creating stop motion movies with Lego’s, woodworking and wood burning.”
Do you have a favorite color? “My favorite color is dark green or blue.”
Is there a certain style, or type of art that you would like to someday try? “One style of art I would like to try is charcoal drawing.”
How has your artwork improved/ what have you done to keep improving as an artist? “I like to watch video tutorials on YouTube because watching people draw helps me to learn new technique.”
Do you have any advice for someone who wants to become an artist and/or improve their skills? “I think practicing daily is a key aspect to help you to become a good artist.”
Caden takes his time and puts forth determination, effort, and thought, into all of his artwork! He’s excited to utilize new techniques and mediums to achieve the goals he sets out to reach within each piece of art he creates. It’s this focus and willingness to learn that will allow Caden to continue to grow and improve as an artist!
